Visiting Wesley College had a 5-1 victory over host Washington College in a non-conference men’s soccer game last Wednesday on Kibler Field. Washington held a 4-3 edge in corner kicks.

The Wolverines scored first, 4:25 into the game; however, sophomore midfielder Justin Geho scored five minutes later on a free kick to tie the score. Unfortunately, the Shoremen were unable to hold off the Wolverines, as they scored four more goals.

Junior goalkeeper Chris Phipps made eight saves in the loss for Washington.

The Shoremen returned to action Saturday when they hosted Centennial Conference Ursinus College at 2:00 p.m.

Goalkeeper James Bedrock, defender Duncan Leech, midfielder Gavin Rayburn, and defender Danny Wood were honored for contributing four years to the WC Men’s soccer team.

Junior forward Jordan Haas scored the game’s only goal in the 87th minute to give WC a 1-0 victory over the Bears. Senior midfielder Gavin Rayburn fed a long pass to Haas, who found the back of the net.

Haas almost made it 2-0 less than two minutes later but missed just wide, right of the post. The Shoremen held a 24-13 advantage in shots in the game.

Junior goalkeeper Chris Phipps made four saves to secure the shutout win for WC.

The Shoremen (4-10-1, 1-5-1 Centennial) played Wednesday with a 3:30 p.m. Centennial Conference game at Haverford.

They close out their season on Saturday at Johns Hopkins with a 7:30 p.m. Centennial Conference game.
